The Pharmacy Technician program at Georgian College has received full accreditation from The Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP). This is great news for Georgian and the students who will graduate from the program.

“Students are required to graduate from an accredited Pharmacy Technician program before they register with the Ontario College of Pharmacists,” says Toni Cano, program co-ordinator for the Pharmacy Technician program. “I’m thrilled that our program was recognized by such a prestigious organization.”

“It’s very important to provide our students with education and learning experiences that are of the highest caliber,” adds faculty member Kendra Barcelos. “This accreditation really puts the Pharmacy Technician program at Georgian on the map.”

The two-year Pharmacy Technician program had its start in September 2011, with the new pharmacy lab in the Sadlon Centre for Health and Wellness. Learn more about the Pharmacy Technician program on our website.
